The first Formula Ford race was staged at Brands Hatch, England. Of the 20 cars that competed, 10 were MRS Lotus 51s, including the eventual winner, Ray Allan. Formula Ford is not a one-make championship. It allows freedom of chassis design, engine build and numerous technical items of specification on the car. This opens the door to many chassis manufacturers, large and small. Many other single-seater formulae impose fixed specifications. Only two other professional single seater racing formulae in the world offer the same freedom of chassis and engine build: Formula Three and Formula One.
